The Naval War College recently held its first target shooting competition at the Newport Rifle Club.
Twenty shooters used .22 caliber semiautomatic pistols in a 30-shot course of slow and rapid fire.
The competition is part of the Naval War College’s President’s Cup, an intramural series of sporting events aimed at encouraging physical fitness and esprit de corps.
Spread throughout the year, the roughly 20 competitions include such diverse sports as soccer, golf, 5-K run, rock climbing, swimming, hockey, polo, sailing, target shooting and basketball.
The President’s Cup competition pits teams of students from the College of Naval Warfare, the College of Naval Command and Staff and the NWC faculty and staff against each other.
In the shooting event, the top four scores from each team were averaged. Here are the results of the target shooting competition:
NWC Staff and Faculty – 224
College of Naval Command and Staff – 210
College of Naval Warfare – 193
Both CAPT Patrick Keyes, USN, Dean of Students, and LTC Dave Spees, USA, a student at the War College and Newport Rifle Club member, who helped organize the shooting competition, said they would like to see the event become a regular part of the President’s Cup. Steve Forand, on the War College faculty and a Newport Rifle Club member, also helped organize the competition.
